A statement read: “Due to the tragic passing of Munster Rugby Head Coach and former captain, Anthony Foley in Paris, today's European Rugby Champions Cup Round 1 match between Racing 92 and Munster Rugby will be rescheduled.” EPCR chairman Simon Halliday added: "On behalf of EPCR, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Anthony's family and to everyone associated with Munster and Irish rugby.
“As a mark of respect to Anthony and his family and to support players, management and staff, Muster Rugby have requested that today's match against Racing 92 be rescheduled.
Soon after the announcement was made, European Professional Club Rugby [EPCR] confirmed that the match has been postponed little more than an hour before kick-off, and passed on their deepest sympathies to Foley’s family.
But it was from 2000 to 2005 that he became established as a key figure in Ireland's team and wore the captain's armband three times.
He holds the Munster record for the most Heineken Cup appearances (85) and was captain when the province became European champions for the first time in 2006.
Foley retired from playing in 2008 and later took up defensive and forward coaching roles at Munster before being appointed head coach. Grief-stricken supporters congregated outside the ground where the game was due to be played to mourn him.
“Munster Rugby management are liaising directly with Anthony's family and will provide them with any assistance and support required.
“The IRFU and Munster Rugby pass on our deepest sympathies to all of Anthony's family and friends and ask for privacy for the family at this sad time.
